ROS production

Laboratory protocol

To determine ROS production we used the modified version by Choi et al. (2006) of the microscopic Nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT, Sigma-Aldrich) assay. Briefly, DCs were stimulated with spores or yeasts, washed, supplemented with 0.1 mg/ml of NBT, which allows the precipitation of formazan particles in presence of ROS. Blue formazan particles were dissolved using 2M KOH and DMSO and its absorbance was measured using a microplate reader at 620 nm. The absorbance of dissolved NBT increased in proportion to cell number, incubation time, and stimulus concentration.
